What should a healing cat spay incision look like

According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), a male cat should be neutered at between 6 months and 1 year of age and a female cat at around 4 months of age. As with humans, the surgery can take place at any time of the year, depending on the cat’s age and the type of surgery being performed.

Neutering is not recommended for cats who have a history of urinary tract infections or other medical conditions that are not well-controlled. The surgery is also not recommended for cats who have had a litter of kittens. Both cats should be spayed or neutered at the same time.

The incision for a cat spay incision usually lasts from one to three days, depending on the size of the cat. Some cats recover quicker than others.

What is the incision like for a cat spay incision?

The incision for a female cat spay incision is usually a small surgical cut made in the skin of the abdomen. It is made so that the incision moves along the skin and not into the muscles, tendons or bones.

The incision for a male cat spay incision is almost always made in the scrotum, with the skin of the scrotum being incised to allow the incision to move along the skin of the scrotum.

Both incisions go along the underside of the abdomen, just in front of the belly button. If the scrotum is not removed at the same time as the incision, the incision can end up being over the tail.

Afterwards, the incisions are usually covered with a special bandage, which is usually removed after about a week.
